Cellulite occurs as a result of changes in the skin’s texture. Just below the surface of the skin are connective bands of tissue called fibrous septae. When the fat cells increase in size, they push up against the skin, causing these fibrous bands of connective tissue to contract and pull down on the skin, which is a process called cellulite dimpling. The raised and lowered skin pattern common with cellulite is sometimes described as having a texture similar to orange peel.
To combat cellulite effectively, it is necessary to restructure the fat deposits so they are more even and uniform.
How Our Cellulite Treatment Works
offers safe and effective treatment for cellulite by targeting the architecture of the subcutaneous tissue that lies beneath the surface of the skin where cellulite develops, which is typically on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
To begin the cellulite treatment, Dr. Massoudi will mark the areas to be treated. Anesthesia is then infused under ultrasound guidance into the fascia, which pulls the skin taunt while stretching the fibrous bands so they can be easily treated.
Once the area is numb, Dr. Massoudi will use a specialized handpiece to localize small and superficial fibrous bands (scar tissues). Using a very small needle, he will then precisely cut away the bands. This will instantly release the fat layers that cause cellulite, resulting in skin that appears smoother.
The cellulite treatment we provide is more effective and more precise than other cellulite treatments because it treats the underlying cause. People who’ve had this treatment done at Aluna Cosmetic, Laser & Vein Centers are happy with the long-term results they’ve received because their skin continues to improve as time passes.
